eDATA Unerase is a program designed to recover lost or deleted files from hard drives, floppy disks or removable storage media. It comes in two versions: Personal and Professional editions. The Personal edition is free, and only recovers certain type of files, but performs the same job. The Pro edition has a cost of $32 dollars, works faster, and is not limited in functions.
As always, this company cares about effectiveness and simplicity, that is why eDATA is really easy-to-use. It is so simple that a wizard will guide the user to recover the files in three simple steps: 1- Select source, 2 - Select search options, and 3 - Scan and save the recovered files to a pointed location.
A New addition in this latest version (for both editions) is that a deleted file list is provided with easy sorting options.
So eDATA is definitively worth having because it will find your personal data even if it has been deleted by a virus, cleared from the Recycle Bin, lost due to drive formatting or system crash.
It is available for all Windows systems including Vista. Please, consult the comparison between versions to see what suits your needs, on the company's web site: http://octanesoft.com/recover_deleted_file_types.html
